Nashville Predators & Jersey Mike\'s Subs Team Up For Month of Giving In March
Nashville Tenn. (February 27, 2011) – The Nashville Predators are joining forces with Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the Nashville area in a March Month of Giving fundraising campaign. The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s nationwide Make A Difference Day event on March 28.

During the month of March, customers can make a donation to the Nashville Predators Foundation at any area Jersey Mike’s store. Customers making a $5 donation to the Nashville Predators Foundation will receive six specially branded Jersey Mike’s Silly Bandz and a coupon for a free bag of chips and a drink, while supplies last. One hundred percent of Silly Bandz sales will be contributed to the Nashville Predators Foundation.

Monday, March 28 has been designated a Jersey Mike’s Make A Difference Day where fans can purchase any regular size sub and receive a second regular size sub free with a minimum $1 donation to charity. All local charity donations benefit the Nashville Predators Foundation. Make A Difference Day will take place at Jersey Mike’s restaurants nationwide to benefit 72 different charities in celebration of the Northeast-style sub franchise’s 55th Anniversary

“We are ecstatic Jersey Mike’s chose the Nashville Predators Foundation as the sole beneficiary for its local Month of Giving Campaign,” Nashville Predators Senior Vice President of Corporate Development Chris Junghans said. “We encourage all Predators fans to visit any participating Jersey Mike’s location and help make a difference in our community.”

Long before cause-related marketing became as widespread as it is today, reaching out to the community was a key component of Jersey Mike’s mission. All Jersey Mike’s franchise owners find ways to support their neighbors, and employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents as well.

“Early on, I learned from my mentors, local businesspeople, the importance of giving back to the community,” Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO Peter Cancro said. “That is the model I chose for Jersey Mike's and we have been doing it since the beginning. The philosophy of giving back is important to us and that’s why we chose to celebrate the milestone marking our 55th year with our first ever ‘Make a Difference Day’, a national effort to ensure deserving charities get the funding they need.”
